LOUISVILLE -- A no-cost rabies clinic on Thursday held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lousiville Municipal Building, located on Route 37.
“Rabies is a deadly disease, and it’s critical that pet owners take this very important step to protect their animals,” said Senator Patty Ritchie, who acquired state funding for the event.
“Last week more than five dozen pets were vaccinated at my Heuvelton clinic and I’m hoping that this event will be just as successful in helping to safeguard animals from rabies.”
So far this year, St. Lawrence County has had 23 confirmed cases of rabies and Jefferson County has had five confirmed cases.
